TRAILKNIT

TRAILKNIT is a fabric construction developed by electronic knitting machines linking loops of yarns on needles. This knitted construction differs from a traditional woven fabric as it is more flexible and can be more effortlessly constructed. TRAILKNIT has been developed for garments that are elastic and better respond to the rider’s motion. A garment featuring a knitted construction is more form fitting, since its elasticity allows it to contour the body more closely. Knitted constructions also enable extra curvature to be introduced without seams – akin to the heel of a sock. Knitting allows an extremely complex fabric construction: The yarn in TRAILKNIT fabric follows a meandering path that can change seamlessly forming different stitching patterns that design precise functional zoning with engineered performance in key areas.

PRO ARMOR + ABS

The Pro-Armor technology is the soul of the protector. Its structure, inspired by natural fractals, allows for extensive and highly flexible coverage of the entire external area of the knee, front and sides, thus also protecting the more delicate lateral bones. The carbon-elastomer compound of which it is formed is able to transform impact energy into heat, thus distributing the force of impact across the protector’s entire area. This means that only 17% of the effective impact is transmitted to the body. Furthermore, its special chemical composition means that, on coming into contact with an obstacle or the ground, the protector becomes rigid, making it even more effective at protecting against injury. The tibia and patella areas, more exposed to violent head-on impacts, can count on an additional plate in ABS, a material also used for ski helmets and able to absorb repetitive, violent impacts, even those involving sharp obstacles.
